Academic learning alone doesn’t assure student success

From their perspective on the frontlines of education, teachers know the incredible complexity and importance of the work they do. In addition to developing cognitive skills in academic subjects like reading and math, teachers must develop a wide range of social and emotional skills — helping students learn how to persevere through frustrations and challenges, how to cooperate and work effectively with peers, and how to believe in themselves as learners and individuals.

Op-Ed: The value of social and emotional learning

National polling shows that nine out of 10 teachers believe that social and emotional learning is key to student success in school and life. It’s a concept that we’ve seen educators statewide embrace through their educational approach, and that we’ve seen proven true by student outcomes in our own classrooms as well as others across Connecticut. Now a new report shows that the evidence base confirms what teachers know and understand so well from their front-line experience.
